Beyonce waxwork SLAMMED by fans who claim figure ‘looks like Leah Remini’ and ‘Rihanna’: ‘Baby, this ain’t Beyonce!’

It takes hundreds of hours to make a wax figure, but there is no guarantee that the statue will be a hit with the public.

And on Thursday, following the release of Madame Tussauds Blackpool’s wax figure of Beyoncé, angry members of the 42-year-old singer’s fan base, known as the Beyhive, flocked to X (formerly known as Twitter) to criticize the museum’s attempt to create a life-size replica of the 32-time Grammy winner.

“Don’t get me wrong, the wax figure is pretty but baby this ain’t BEYONCE,” wrote one. “I need them to get an actual picture of her or bring her over there while you guys are making it.”

A handful of social media users called out the wax figure for looking more like Leah Remini (53), Tyra Banks (50) or Rihanna (35) than the mother of three.

“If it didn’t say Beyoncé I would have said Leah (Remini) for sure,” quipped one confused X user.

In response to the growing number of comments suggesting the figure looked more like Remini, one fan opined that it was a ‘huge win’ for the Kevin Can Wait actress.

One petulant Beyoncé fan asked why the wax museums always ‘mess up her face every time’.

Another wrote: ‘They got Beyoncé dirty though.’

Still, some have pointed out that progress has been made compared to other wax figures of the artist.

“I mean Beyoncé’s new wax figure looks better than the last one, so give credit where it’s due,” one person said amid all the complaints.

In 2017, a wax figure of the singer was pulled because he looked ‘whitewashed’.

At the time, many compared the statue to look like Taylor Swift.

“Don’t get me wrong, the wax figure is pretty but baby this ain’t BEYONCE,” wrote one. “I need them to get an actual picture of her or bring her over there while you guys are making it.”

After it was briefly ‘taken off the floor’ for ‘adjustment’, TMZ reported that it returned to the museum after being altered to more closely approximate Beyonce’s skin tone.

Madame Tussauds New York released a statement that read: ‘We love, respect and enjoy a working relationship with Beyoncé… We have adjusted the styling and lighting of her figure, and she is (back) on view.’

Over the years, Madame Tussauds has had a history of disappointing Beyoncé fans, starting with the London Tussaud’s location in 2004.
